It’s Our Fave Squeezeboxer: Check out this profile of Brigid Kaelin and you start to get an idea of how cool she is. And she lives in the neighborhood. We’re swooning. [ILIL]
Breakfast Anywhere But Especially Here: The new Esquire devotes 16 pages to the subject of the great morning meal. Included is the recipe for Jalapeno-and-Ancho Oatmeal from 610 Magnolia and a graph about Wagner’s ham and eggs. The C-J’s Katya Cengel gets in the credits. I’m jealous.

Logging Lincoln: Yep, lot of Lincoln-related remembrances reminders in the mailbox, and we know they’re releasing new pennies as part of his birthday celebration. But Jake’s got the best way to honor Abe on the Internets. [Page One]

Alcohol Tax Tiebreaker: Last chance for opponents of the revenue bill, which includes increased taxes on tobacco and alcohol, is in the full Senate tomorrow.

Like We Care, But Still: They’re down to 36 American Idol finalists, and even though several auditioned here, no one still in it is even from Kentucky. So all those contestants, at least the good ones, were mainly people who travel the country to auditions. Don’t you feel cheated? [E!]
Octo-Photo: Strong stomach required to look at this. Really strong. [HuffPo]
